Octavian Florescu Artist Painter-Sculptor
I was born in 1957 in the Southern Romanian town of Craiova. In 1978 I interrupted my university studies in engineering to become a full-time artist painter. For five years I studied church painting and restoration which gave me the opportunity to learn and master all painting techniques from the ancient fresco to the contemporary oil and acrylic. The influence of the Byzantine style is noticeable in all my work. In 1989, while in Hungary, I completely dedicated myself to surrealism, that allows me to best express my ideas.Over the past 21 years my paintings have been seen in Austria, Canada, France, Hungary, Mexico, Romania, and the USA.--The unknown, the energy, and the struggle to discover the essence of life the movement and the metamorphosis are the basic elements of my work.--The search for the Human essence, for the link between the human reality and the spiritual one are the leading ideas in my work.--The elements that I am using are almost real; the characters are fluid and in motion; they are spiritual, radiating an energy on the point of merging with the Universe.--Each work is a story, a rhapsody, a vision into spirituality. I am trying to suggest only the idea of departure in meditation toward perfection, without creating the image of an absolute world.--The suppleness of the human symbols, the movement, the soaring toward the infinite try to introduce the spectator into a system of perfection.--All of my work is a real introspection of life.
